Do you know what type of fruit trees grow in 100 mile house area? We're moving there soon!!!
Re: Fast Growing Tree - 100 Mile House area
Apples, crabapples, saskatoons, sour cherries, apricots (selected varieties), plums, blueberries, cranberries and probably a few more.
Thanks , do you know what agriculture or hardiness zone it is ? I see apricots on your list but not peaches???
Maybe in a pot. In a greenhouse. Maybe a heated greenhouse? Check out varieties of dwarf peaches, you never know. 100 mile has a higher elevation than Quesnel. I would think peaches would need shelter from prevailing cold winds. Good luck!
Thanks for the tip I'd never have thought of potted trees.I guess they could go into the garage in the winter.
Apricots are more closely related to plums and are from similarly cold regions. There are Apricot varieties that will fruit up into zone 3.
Peaches are more related to Almonds and are from distinctly warmer climates. While the trees may survive zone 5, the flowerbuds usually require zone 6 or warmer.
